Pupils use photonics to tackle real-life problems at school


With the B-Photonics Challenger Cup, we challenged pupils of schools in Flanders and Brussels to find solutions for problems in their daily lives. As a scientific and educational initiative of B-PHOT and Colruyt Group / Technics, Real Estate & Energy, we focus on photonics and its applications. Not less than 18 groups of students from seven different schools in Flanders and Brussels gave the best of themselves and sent us a video of their solution. A jury, composed of experts from ColruytGroup / Technics, Real Estate & Energy and experts from VUB B-PHOT Brussels Photonics, rewarded the best groups.
